Description

Renowned for its gardens and guesthouses, Blackheath sits at the summit of the Blue Mountains less than a two-hour drive west of Sydney. This rambling village of stone and weatherboard houses is also the starting point for some of the most spectacular of the mountain hiking trails. It is most famous for its annual ‘Rhododendron Festival’ held in November each year.
